Pregnant and can't stop eating

I'm around 8 weeks (I think, no EDD, awaiting dating scan) and can't stop stuffing my face. So far have eaten a large bagel, butter and marmite and an apple plus large skinny decaf latte for breakfast, veggie sushi, miso soup, an apple, nectarine and a KitKat chunky for lunch and STILL hungry. Have already gained 4/5lbs and all my clothes feel tight but just feel a compulsion to stuff myself. I only gained 1 1/2 stones with DS in total so freaking out a bit, although my starting weight is about half a stone lower than when I got pregnant with DS. Is anyone else piling it on at the rate of knots?

You need to eat lots in the first trimester ime just to get through it! It sounds completely normal to me & what's more it doesn't sound like an awful lot of food - plus it's all good stuff (apart from the Kit Kat - I'll overloook that if you overlook my jam on toast & hot chocolate!.

Listen to your body!

Yes - 14+5 and I just can't stop eating - sadly not as healthy as you Gangle, I'm mainly chocolate and cakes sad I'm gaining about a pound a week which I'm sure is far too fast for this stage. Every day, I tell myself I'll stop...
